Diagnosed And Living With High Blood Pressure

Once diagnosed, you'll have questions.  Like, can it be cured?  How will it affect my life?  Do I now have to eat tasteless foods?  Do I have to take medications for the rest of my life?

All these are valid questions, but your life is far from over. You can still do your everyday tasks, but you need to make a couple of changes so that you can have a good quality of life that also include longevity.

You have to take steps in keeping your blood pressure under control to live a healthy life.

I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure for years and I'm fine and am enjoying life. Although high blood pressure can be a life-threatening condition and must be managed, restricting your life by avoiding strenuous exercise or stop eating out is not part of the plan.  Here I am out with family and friends having a great time in Arizona.

After You Are Diagnosed With HBP

You'll be prescribed a list of HBP medications that will be appropriate for your body type and told to monitor your blood pressure daily.  The consequences of not treating your high blood pressure are far greater than the side effects of your medication.

Some of the consequences are a stroke with you paralyzed for life or having a heart attack and dying. My nephew died at the age of forty-two while bending down to put on his shoe.

Here are some things you can do now, that is within your control, to maintain optimal health and longevity:

  • Buy a blood pressure monitor for your home, monitor your blood pressure daily, keep a record of your measurements that will help you to know when your pressure is spiked and what might be contributing to that spike.  At times certain foods we eat do increase our blood pressure.
  • Read my HBP Guidebook. It is packed with vital information and actional steps for you to begin taking care of yourself.
  • Join my nutritional online program. I've created custom programs that have helped women of color and other individuals who at one time suffered from preventable chronic diseases diagnosis live completely free of medication. Once you know how to control the body and mind, the body can heal itself.
  • Your doctor will advise you to include daily regimen of exercise, and make changes to your diet.  Think along the lines of enjoying foods that are high in potassium, adequate amounts of calcium and magnesium, and low in sodium. Decrease your calorie intake to prevent obesity and be moderate in your alcohol consumption.

With the lowering of your blood pressure, you may be able to escape the many complications of a heart attack, brain damage or kidney failure, that are all side effects of untreated high blood pressure.

Living Your Life To The Fullest With HBP

You must make sure to always focus on your diet, daily supplements, medications, stick to an exercise program so that you can avoid complications that comes with having an elevated blood pressure.

Living with high blood pressure has made me more aware of any changes within my body, you too must get to know and listen to your body even more.
